The White Mountain by Dan Szczesny

Over the course of one calendar year, journalist Dan Szczesny explored the history and mystique of New England’s tallest mountain. But Mount Washington is more than just a 6,288-foot rock pile; the mountain is the cultural soul of climbers, hikers, and tourists from around the world looking to test heir mettle against some of the most extreme conditions in return for a chance to be inspired by some of the most intense natural beauty.


From being on the team of a ninety-seven-year-old marathon runner to dressing as Walt Whitman and reading poetry up the mountain to spending a week in winter cooking for the scientists at the observatory, the mountain became Szczesny’s muse. In The White Mountain, Szczesny turns a veteran journalist’s eye toward exploring Mount Washington’s place in the collective consciousness of the country and how this rugged landscape has reflected back a timeless history of our obsession and passion for exploration and discovery.

Dan Szczesny is a long-time author and journalist living in New Hampshire. Learn more about Dan’s work at www.danszczesny.com

Having a Fine Time in Manchester: Vintage Post Cards and Local History

Post cards have many a story to tell about the built landscape, disastrous events such as fires or floods, daily folk customs, and the identity of place. During the golden age of the post card, before telephones, personal messages could contain anything from the mundane, "Having a fine time, wish you were here..." to more profound reflections on family life or colorful portraits of towns and cities from the perspective of newly-landed immigrants.  Presented bh Robet Perreault.  Sponsored by the NH Humanities Council and the Friends of the Meredith Library.  Light refreshments served.
